We were delighted to be approached to tender for the renovation building works and creation of a garden room at The Lodge; for which we were successfully awarded the contract to undertake both projects.
The proposed garden room at the rear of the property was a combination of a steel frame and conventional construction; with a flat, lead roll roof. The glass doors and windows were powder-coated aluminium.
The challenge was that access to the rear of the house was very limited. We decided to make an opening in the rear wall of The Lodge and create a scaffold ramp down onto the garden, with this in place excavation of the foundations could begin.
The new garden room was built 50% below ground level. Structural concrete retaining wall with an integrated damp proofing tanking system was installed. The outcome was a great success and a great addition to the main house.
Once the garden room project to the main house was nearing completion, we were able to begin the work renovating The Lodge.
A new roof had to be formed to The Lodge, this was a vaulted style and incorporated structural steel to enable construction. A full central heating system was installed along with full electrical rewire, formation of a third bathroom, new kitchen, complete re-décor, and new oak floors throughout.
The external work consisted of removing existing concrete hardstanding and laying reclaimed pennant slabs to create a beautiful courtyard.
The overall outcome of both projects was an exemplary finished standard which the clients are delighted with.
